Define Exception Rules

Here you define exception rules. Exception rules determine when orders or nodes within a hierarchy that have certain variances are highlighted, enabling you to pinpoint particular orders for further analysis. The percentage or absolute threshold values you specify determine when a traffic light of a particular color is set.

The rule basis you specify tells the system which data the threshold values refer to.

Example

Suppose you define the rule basis "Cost variance against plan in percent" and define the threshold value for a yellow traffic light as 10% and for red 30%.

Result:

Standard settings

The standard system contains a number of predefined rule bases.

Activities

To define an exception rule:

1. Choose New entries.
2. Enter a number for the rule and press F4 to choose a rule basis.
3. Enter a threshold value.
4. Save the rule.
